This weekend was the annual Johnny Warren Memorial cup over 35′ at Jamberoo, Johnny Warren was an ambassador for growing australian soccer guiding the Australian soccer into the world cup. This was our first year as last year the tournament was cancelled due to pouring rain. Arriving Friday evening camp was set and a bit of a relax before the first game.
Being unsuccessful in our opening 2 matches of Friday night we came out on Saturday morning to play last years winners. Team Impact played well and learned alot.
After our final game we sat around and watched some high quality soccer, it was hard to try and contain Greenie once he saw Craig Foster or Fozzy as Greenie was calling him, who was also playing in this tournament which the Brazilian team. these guys really know how to turn it on and the skill level making it look easy. There were some other great matches we got to watch as well.
The day was hot and we were thirsty and luckily for the ladies shirts were optional and with a few beers a skateboard and appropriate headwear to keep the sun off our faces.
Sorry I forgot to mention that SBS were called to film the new up and coming team IMPACT he did walk passed to set up for the next game.
Anyway had a great time with some great mate a few beers and many laugh’s. Thanks for a great weekend boys and to all those who put on such a great weekend in memory of a great man “Johnny Warren” cant wait for next year where impact will do alot better.
Till next time
